A review by pbobrit
Steps by Jerzy Kosinski


Firstly, the Kindle edition could have done with a copy editor's review, there were a number of glaring typos in the text.

This book is definitely of its time, it won the National Book Award in the late 1960s, but reading it now it is difficult to see what set it apart from other writing of the time. The text feels Henry Miller-ish in parts, and even by the time it was publish I'm sure some of the content would still have been seen to be shocking (although nothing more outlandish than things W. Burroughs wrote), but these days it seems pretty tame.

It was a quick read.
